Tamera Mowry is looking for her cousin who was at a university pub where a lone shooter opened fire and killed approximately 12 people. Reportedly, Tamera’s relative, Alaina Housely, was just one part of a group of young women who went dancing at the Borderline Bar And Grill in Thousand Oaks on Wednesday night.
According to a tweet from Alaina’s friend, she was the only woman not found after the shooting. On Twitter, Ashley, her suitemate, asked for help in the search of Alaina.
Mowry’s husband, Adam, went looking for the young woman at a hospital nearby but a reporter claimed that the guards wouldn’t let him in because they had the hospital on lockdown.
Even worse, Alaina’s Apple Watch and iPhone showed that she was still at the bar – reports the LA Times. Adam said to the newspaper that his feeling was that she was inside the bar, dead.

He hoped that he was wrong though. As you may know, this is just one of many shootings in the last few years, with the most terrible being the Las Vegas shooting back in October of last year.
On the 1st of October, 2017, a gunman opened fire at the Route 91 Music Festival in the Mandalay Bay Hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada. It was the deadliest mass shooting in the history of the United States, with 58 people killed and over 850 injured.
The incident sparked yet another debate on gun control in the United States, but so far, no changes have been made. Supposedly, the man used a bump stock, which allows one to shoot a semi-automatic weapon as if it was a fully-automatic weapon.
A bump stock allows for the trigger to be held down when the receiver pushes forward. It is reset by each round through the receiver recoil.
Essentially, a semi-automatic weapon can mimic a fully-automatic weapon through the use of this accessory. However, gun activists state that prohibiting the sale of particular accessories won’t stop someone with malicious intentions.
